Matthew Morrison a.k.a. Will Schuester from Glee has a break from shooting the series this summer.He could sleep or hang out at the beach…or maybe find some time to date!!! He says he’s a workaholic, no time for ladies now and we love him for it! Instead of taking some well-deserved time off, Matthew will be on the road promoting his debut solo album – appropriately titled Matthew Morrison. He’s also touring Canada with NKOTB and BSB.I caught up with Matthew on his cell phone while he was driving to rehearsal for the summer tour. (He wouldn’t tell me if he was on blue tooth or not!)Taylor Kaye: We, of course, are excited because you’re coming to Toronto next week.Matthew Morrison: Yeah I can’t wait, I’m a huge fan of Toronto. I love going there.TK: What is it that you love about the city? Is it because you’re also a stage actor and we’re pretty big stage freaks here?MM: Yeah, I mean, I didn’t actually do a show there, I kind of missed out on a show I was supposed to do there. But I’ve seen definitely a lot of friends in shows there. It’s one of my favourite cities to run around in. I’m a big runner, and I love just getting lost there. It’s really a great city just to kind of get lost in and see the sights.TK: We’ll make sure you have a running map or schedule when you get here so it’s all cool and you run in the good areas.MM: Yeah I don’t want to be in the crack district.TK: When was the moment you knew you wouldn’t have to do any more odd jobs with your career? When you were like, “Alright, I don’t have to do this anymore.”MM: I’m still looking for that moment.TK: [Laughing] Come ON!MM: No I’m serious! I still live like a starving actor. You wouldn’t even believe. My friends can attest to it. They’re like, “Dude, just buy the freaking more expensive toothpaste!” I still have that mentality, yeah I did very well, but I just have that mentality of a starving actor so I’m very, very frugal with my money. Good because I get to save a lot of money.TK: Let’s talk about your album. You are touring with Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block…all guys. Ladies will just be screaming for two and a half/three hours, and you’re on for 45 minutes of the set doing your stuff.MM: Yeah.TK: That is huge. How did you hook up with that? Because you already had your tour set and then, what happened? How did this all come about?MM: I had my tour all set and I was so excited about that, I had a whole hour and a half show put together. That’s why I’m going to rehearsal now because I’m still doing that show in a couple places. I’m going to London next week. But they came to my people and asked if I wanted to be a part of it, and you know, in my tour I would’ve been playing 2,000 to 3,000 people a night and this has been upped to 15,000 to 20,000 people a night and people would have had my CD and stuff on my tour, and I plan on eventually doing that tour at some point, but this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up
